If you were out on parole and were arrested for dealing drugs then you will go back to prison. They are not going to allow a program for a violation of parole that serious.

An attorney can assist you with evaluating the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to plea bargain or go to trial. If you were to be found guilty, then an attorney can assist you with presenting mitigation, allocution, and a recommendation for a more lenient sentence. and a recommendation for a more lenient sentence. Consider seeking a confidential consultation with an experienced criminal defense attorney. Beware that online posts are not confidential. If somehow the prosecution were to find your post, then it might be used in evidence against you.

What? You were on probation and then you got a new case and got 30 months but you want to keep your probation. Not likely, but it is up to the judge on the probation case.

    There is no such thing as shock parole. You will either have a parole setback or be resentenced for your VOP. There is no way to beat it. It's a damage limitation exercise.
